Palin: ‘I Don’t Want to Be a Burden on the Ticket’
Sarah Palin said on Sunday that she wouldn’t want to be Donald Trump’s running mate as she isn’t interested in becoming a burden to the campaign.
“Well, I want to help and not hurt, and I am such a realist that I realize there are a whole lot of people out there who would say ‘anybody but Palin,’ ” Palin said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
The Hill reports:
Palin, who ran on the 2008 ticket with GOP nominee John McCain, said she thinks many would see her candidacy as a burden.
“I don’t want to be a burden on the ticket, and I realize in many eyes, I would be a burden,” she said. “I just want the guy to win, and I don’t know if I would be the person to help him win.”
When asked if she would consider being vetted by the Trump campaign for the position, she said she thinks she’s “pretty much as vetted as anybody in the country could be vetted already.”
“I think there are so many great people in America who could serve in this country [as vice president.]”
